Certain throttle assemblies have an elevated risk of intermittent failure.
The intermittent throttle is caused by wire connections within the throttle assembly that
may experience an increase in electrical resistance over time, resulting in an incorrect
electrical signal out of the throttle assembly. If this occurs, the throttle may become
unresponsive, the vessel might remain in gear causing the propeller to turn when neutral
is desired and/or the engines may not restart, increasing the risk of personal injury.
What to do...
Cummins is working with distributors and dealers in relation to the recall.
Consumers with affected throttle assemblies and/or affected engines
containing affected throttle assemblies should contact their nearest Cummins Distributor
or Dealer to arrange a time for inspection. Affected throttle assemblies will be inspected
and, if required following inspection, replaced, at no cost to the equipment owners.
